Goosfest -Coming Soon


A floral masterclass by Chelford florist Myke Caulton was one of the first events to sell-out at this year's 'Goosfest', the 2-week October festival of music and arts in Goostrey.

Tickets for this year's Goosfest have been selling faster than ever before – but there is still limited availability for some of the events.

Many concerts and workshops are sold out – but the organisers of October's two-week festival in Goostrey say there are still a few unsold tickets for some events.

In particular, there's still availability for two of the Saturday night specials:
BBC 'Springwatch' presenter and wildlife expert Iolo Williams (pictured) is making a rare appearance in Cheshire with a presentation on Saturday October 5th about his career, sharing some stunning photography and anecdotes about his broadcasting work.

And on Saturday October 12th, there's an Elvis tribute evening, featuring one of the world's top ten Elvis tribute acts, Paul Larcombe, with band and backing singers.

For other music lovers, there's limited availability for two Goostrey village hall concerts – an evening of mellow jazz with St├ęphane Grappelli guitarist John Etheridge and singer Vimala Rowe on Friday October 4th, and a range of guitar music in 'Worlds of the Guitar' by Rik Roberts on Sunday October 13

There's a country music night in an appropriate possible setting – a barn transformed into a concert venue – with Katie O'Malley and her band on Sunday October 6, and a spectacular organ recital in St Luke's Church, Goostrey, by Bridgewater Hall organist Jonathan Scott on Sunday October 20th.

Goosfest, which runs from October 4th – October 21st – is now in its 13th year, featuring a mix of music, drama, comedy and workshops. This year's event also includes a 2-day art exhibition, children's science afternoon, artisan market at The Crown pub and 'Autumn Splendour' weekend at St Luke's Church.

Goosfest organiser William Ollier said: "We've been staggered at the response to this year's festival schedule. We always try to give local people a good mix of entertainment and activities over the Goosfest fortnight, and this year's programme is proving hugely popular. But there's still some availability for festival events, so it's worth checking out our website quickly to see what's on offer.'
